As its looking highly unlikely the Hope Valley scheme is going to happen, the local MPs clearly have a good imagination to believe that a few stations on the line out of Sheffield could be reopening.
Three railway stations in Sheffield could reopen, with people being asked to have their say about the exciting proposals.
Sheffield MPs Olivia Blake and Louise Haigh are seeking a slice of the Government’s £500 million Restoring Your Railway Fund, which was set up to reverse the notorious Dr Beeching cuts of the 1960s and 70s
Sheffield Heeley MP Ms Haigh, and Ms Blake, MP for Sheffield Hallam, have previously told how restoring services along Sheaf Valley would ‘transform links from south and south-west Sheffield to the city centre and Manchester, provide greener links to the Peak District and cut congestion on busy routes including Abbeydale Road and Ecclesall Road.
